Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. and Flying Lizard Motorsports have their eyes set on a third consecutive overall win at the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill next month.
The team will return to the track with the No. 45 Toyo Tires / Flying Lizard Audi R8 LMS and Toyo Proxes Slicks ready to defend their back-to-back overall and ES class wins. Considered North America’s longest endurance racing event, the 25 Hours is one of the premier events held annually by National Auto Sport Association (NASA).
In addition to the Audi R8 LMS, Toyo Tires and Flying Lizard Motorsports will field a Porsche Cayman GT4 competing in the newly formed Toyo Tires GT Challenge class. This new spec class features equally prepared Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport and GT4 Clubsport MR race cars competing on 18-inch Toyo Proxes RR DOT competition tires.
“We are thrilled to once again partner with Flying Lizard Motorsports and together fight for our third consecutive overall win and ES class victory at the 25 Hours,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager, motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “They have been an amazing partner in racing and development. We are also equally excited to have expanded our efforts with an entry into the inaugural Toyo Tires GT Challenge class, as we look to put the iconic FLM and Toyo Tires livery on the top step of the podium in that class as well.”
